Priest isn't really a biker movie, the kind I've been reviewing here. But.. the main characters rides "motorcyclse" throughout the movie, so I guess it deserves a spot here. The movie was released in 2011, and is based on a Korean comic book.

The 87 minute long movie is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi/vampire movie, and the motorcycles are totally cool turbine equipped motorcycles, capable of 250 mph (with help of some nitro). It reminds me a bit of the MT Y2K TurbineMT Y2K Turbine bike, except the turbine is enormous. The motorcycles are actually based on the Suzuki Gladius, but you'd never known that when you see it.

As movies go, this one is great, that is if you are into sci-fi, end of the world, and lots of blood and vampire slaying.

As stories go, it's same-old, same-old... vampires kidnap the priest's niece, and he goes into the badlands to get her back. The action is continuous and interesting, and the special effects are very well done. The fight between the priestess and the biker gang is epic.

Most of the movie's scenes are dark, since as we all know, you can only hunt vampire in the dark. At times, also thanks to the music, it looked like a sci-fi western.

The movie ends in such a way that there's going to be a sequel, and probably a prequel.

Quotes
: "After all, if you're not committing sin... you're not having fun."  "I'm sweaty, I'm clenched, I'm ready for something"

Plot
: PRIEST, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his daughter is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his daughter's boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

Verdict
: Very good, big production/budget movie, lots of special effects and a reasonable amount of motorcycle riding on futuristic motorcycles. Blade meets High Noon.
